- Monitoring Log4Net Applications - Use a combination of Monitor Views and the Non Events to get alerts
- Logging from Log4Net Applications - Follow your business transaction workflows using Log Views down to technical level by logging all events to Nodinite without making changes to the existing .NET based solutions
"log4net is a tool to help the programmer output log statements to a variety of output targets. In case of problems with an application, it is helpful to enable logging so that the problem can be located. With log4net it is possible to enable logging at runtime without modifying the application binary. The log4net package is designed so that log statements can remain in shipped code without incurring a high performance cost. It follows that the speed of logging (or rather not logging) is crucial.
At the same time, log output can be so voluminous that it quickly becomes overwhelming. One of the distinctive features of log4net is the notion of hierarchical loggers. Using these loggers it is possible to selectively control which log statements are output at arbitrary granularity.
log4net is designed with two distinct goals in mind: speed and flexibility"
You will only need 1 license for enabling monitoring of logged events from your Log4Net logging .NET applications.
Nodinite grabs all events with or without payload depending on Log4Net configuration from from all your .NET applications. Provide correlation Ids to get the whole picture. Combine this with other tracked properties in your system integration solutions and you have true end to end logging across all platforms and solutions.
When Nodinite detects a problem with your .NET applications based on logged events, an alert can get distributed using any of the built-in Alarm plugins to get you or the responsible organization aware and involved.
Nodinite has Role based security and enables you to restrict access down to individual logged events using one or more Log Views. We at Nodinite think it is wise to limit the number of power users (administrators) from having direct access to servers and services. All operations in Nodinite are being audited.
Over time as your number of distributed .NET applications grow, Nodinite centralizes logging and you can maintain control providing great governance and in the end higher quality of service. There is no need to code or change anything within your .NET applications.
